    I voted for Obama. I still support many of his initiatives. HOWEVER, can someone please explain to me WHY we need to send more troops to Afghanistan. I CANNOT see us winning anything there. Based on our best intelliegince, Osama Bin Laden is no longer there, but rather in Pakistan. Besides more deaths, and more billions of dollars spent, what good is goiing to come from this?

    Not to worry.
    His Lordship the Obamessiah will explain all to his subjects tomorrow.
    Probably.

    I believe that the Jewish lobby and other elements of our ZOG government are forcing him to extend the lost and useless war in Afghanistain. :evil:

    because he was left with a two-front war... and the taliban likes the idea of getting pakistan's nukes....

    personally, i don't think we'll be there that long. this is just a shoring up so he doesn't leave a bigger mess when he leaves than was there when bush created this problem in the first place.

    this was always the front that should have been addressed... we had no business in iraq in the first place.

    grow up... i can't help it if he's the gift that keeps on giving.

    or did obama somehow start these problems?

    oh wait...it's bush who let bin laden escape into the hills in 2003... hmmmmmm...

    but doesn't matter... you wouldn't have supported the president if he sent no troops... 100,000 troops... or anyhthing in between... so as far as i'm concerned, you rightwingnuts are deranged on the obama issue. WHY we are there can't be discussed without discussing how we got there. and how to get out gracefully. if he pulled out all troops, you'd be crying your eyes out that the "libs" are cowards.

    i can't help it if your boys screwed up and left the mess for the grown-ups to clean up. so go have a nice bloody mary or something this morning and get a grip... because responses like yours tells me you can't discuss these issues intelligently.

    The left does not have the courage to answer this question. They feel the need to go fight a drug war against poor people in Afghanistan...........

    Another Vietnam now, because Democrats can only fail. It's what they do, and why a clown like Bush was President twice. Look at his competition. The education of our young continues..............

    the messiah has made a mistake, he bragged during his campaign that Afghanistan was "a war worth fighting" one of the first things he did when coronated was send more troops to "the war worth fighting" the only reason he has cold feet now is because his far left base are spineless tweets who would refuse to fight if their mama was in danger. Having said that I agree with you, we cannot win there. He should pull all the troops out sooner rather than later and bring them home. Who cares if he has to eat crow.

    You are right Jillian.

    It will take Obama more that just a year to clean up the mess that Bush had 8 years to create.
